Actuarial Science University List Still Growing

Posted under blog

college-students.gifWe’ve recently added a number of new forums tailored just for the ActSci Universities across the US. If you have an actuarial science program that is not listed in our forum, send Tom an email or just leave a comment to this article and we’ll be sure to add your school to our regularly updated list. Our newest university added to the forum is Valparaiso University. For a full list of actuarial science universities, just continue reading this article or go directly to our Actuarial Science University Forum and start chatting.

In your school’s actuarial science forum, you can discuss/post your class notes, ask questions about homework / upcoming exam, or organize your next departmental social event. If you’d like your forum divided into more specific sub-forums, just send a private message or email to Tom, and he will be glad to help. If you’d like to get the word out about this growing resource, ask your school’s webmaster to post a link on your department’s home page to your school’s forum on the Actuarial Outpost. If you’re a teacher and would like help your students sign up for IDs on the Outpost, contact Tom via email at tom{at}, and he can create a list of login IDs for your students along with some other helpful “getting started” information.

Click on any of the following universities’ names to go to their specific forum here on the Actuarial Outpost. The main contact is listed under each school along with a link to their actuarial science department’s website. If you notice any information that is outdated or incorrect, please leave a comment below, and we will have it as up to date as possible.

    I’ll have to answer your question with another question….

    Have you browsed this forum?

    There are lots of discussions about comparing diferent actuarial science programs that are in the same region. Now, if you want my opinion on what is the best actuarial science university in the US, I’m gonna go with FSU. But then again, I’m bias.

    Here are some other useful discussion threads:
